WEST POINT, NY - ARMY WEST POINT and Montclair State University carved up USMA's Tate Rink with a combined 13 goals in a see-saw matchup. The Cadets played only their second game on home ice in the 2016-2017 campaign and the historic confines of the Holleder Center boosted the team's morale after a tight 3-2 loss the previous day.

​In his return to the ice after a semester abroad, Kyle Vogel lit the lamp three times for a hat trick - including the game winner - and added an assist. ARMY WEST POINT spotted the Hawks a 2-0 lead after the first period then faced a 4-1 deficit in the second period before notching six of the game's next eight goals. Matt Reihl, Matt Ouellette, Kyle Vogel, and Jay Peterson all figured in the scoring of the period's four Cadet goals.

​Montclair State pushed its 5-4 lead to a 6-4 advantage early in the third period before ARMY WEST POINT struck for two to tie the game, on goals from Alexander Miller and Drew Lysakowski. Vogel finished off his hat trick with the game winner with under 5 minutes to play and the squad hung on in a frantic finish to capture the 7-6 victory.

​ARMY WEST POINT concludes the regular season with a roadie to Penn State University February 3 and 4.
